  1. My TM is not really good. He has a good jumping reach (14 with 1m88) but he is lacking a bit of bravery and he lacks a bit of physical presence. I switched to DLF and he was participating much more to the game.
  2. OK, if I understand well Oreilly is carrying the ball because he cannot pass. IW su and FB attack will allow following passes options, correct?
  3. Thanks, I will try first the urgency of play instruction, and then the more urgenht press. For the FBa, I do think I need something to create an overload because right now it cannot come from runs of my CMs in the middle, they are only 2 and I prefer having them distributing to the flanks. The wingers are doing very predictable play: get the ball and run a bit, then cross. Hopefully the run of the FBa will help creating the 1-2 sec unbalance on one side so my player can cross. That was one of my idea to try next. Thanks! Not really, he is a natural FB, but he has strong attribu
  4. Here what I would change: I would like Oreilly to drop further back to have more space. He is already on defense duty, so maybe a BWM de? If the opposite CM is closing down, It makes room for my TM to drop in the space. Then I would drop my left winger to support. Or as suggested by frukox switch to WM. He is too high and not giving a pass option. my right winger seems better placed on the picture above. For the FBs, having the winger a bit lower will probably also avoid him to go too high. And I would up the tempo, as possession is not what fits the team. I would try those changes first and
  5. Allright, let's do this. I started with the setup above, balanced and no TI/PI. First game, I lost 4-0 against a 442. A lot of possession, but nothing interesting with the ball from my side. A lot of crosses; but all directly against the defender. Very predictable play I would say They scored 2 goals from counterattacks, and one from a penalty after a counter attack also. Similar thing happened. My CMs just passed the ball laterally to the other, the pressing by the 2 CMs makes him lose the ball (my team in white). I have a nice line of 4 attacking the defensive line but no support to my midfi
  6. Thank you. It is also a point I know but struggle to remind : setting an instruction does not mean they will only do this even if it makes no sense. Setting instruction means that when the player will chose one option instead of the other if he has many available at hand. Which is also an indication if the players are not doing what you want: maybe the option to do X is not at all there, therefore he decides for the option Y every time even if you tell him to do X...
  7. Thank you for this absolute gem about LLM and team assessment. It is amazing how bright it is when you read such content. I wish I could take the light to my own games but as you said the learn,ing never ends
  8. My CM(su) is too late because busy with the IF and my BWM too deep. Here the no8 goes for the shot, but the pass to no7 was also a great option.
  9. Here are a few screenshots of the situations where I concede: First against a 442: The full back are fairly wide, my winger closes down... But just follows the FB and don't challenge the ball. Here another situation against 433: they are playing with 2 IF. They are focusing play in the middle to make space for their FBs. Please note how my BWM (no8) is sitting deep not really helping. the CMs from IA are doing what they want in front of my 2 lines. Only my wingers seems to be able to help. Is it a situation where I need to change the duty of my BWM to
  10. Thank you for your replies. Here a few comments (my intend is not to be stubborn, I am sure you guys know better. I will try all your suggestions, It is just to help me understand some points and why my thinking is wrong): Here I start to see a pattern in my tactics. I ask my player to do something (through instructions or role), and I ask them something else with some other instructions. I need to be careful about that. Brings me to the why I clicked it and why I clicked "play out of defense": my center backs were kicking the ball every time they had possession, even with
  11. Ok so first season I finished 3rd, and lost in half final of playoffs after the penalties. Second season, after a complicated start (probably because of the 7 nex signings), I climbed up and was ranked 3rd again. And then this happened: After the nice 6-2 against hungerford, everything broke appart. I concede a lot of goals from 20m long shots and on crosses. What can I do against that? i tried to press more with my CM and my wingers/fullbacks but I still concede on crosses and 20m shots. Why is my tactic falling appart? My guess is now I am considered as one of the good
  12. side referee is heavily sweating every time my CM is approaching the box and do not know what to do with the ball. I mean you know shooting and having the ball constantly 1-2m too high or too much to one side, I can understand. But here every single time the ball is doing something funny. High consistency though
  13. Thanks a lot for your quick reply. I figure out a few tweaks by myself, which corresponds to a few of your comments. I was able to see some very nice counter attacks on almost each replay: CM regaining back the ball, kicking to the DLF, who waits a bit until the poacher makes a nice run, passing the ball into space to get a nice one on one. All counter attacks are hapenning in center of pitch though, which is OK for me, but I was expecting more from my wingers on attack? I am now 4th in league (media prediction: 15th), and I just won against the 1st and 3rd in league with clear counter attack
  14. Hello everybody, I am seeking a bit of help to understand what I am doing wrong. I am a new player to the game, and I am really interested in the tactics bit. As I like to approach the stuffs logically, I would like to start with the basics: simple 442, before moving to the more complex formations and concepts like overloads etc. Therefore, I am managing Oxford City in Vanrama South. LL is perfect for 442. I restarted 2x the save. First time it went good; until it didn't. I was on losing streak and no way to bring morale back up again. So I restarted and focused on keeping morale
